COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bucket Head IPA is an aggressively hopped India Pale Ale. We believe that you should go big or go home. Therefore, we add Cascade, Centennial and Mt. Hood hops buckets at a time to make the biggest of our beers. This copper colored beer will start with a hint of sweetness, immediately followed with a punch in the mouth of bitterness.

On draught at the Austin airport during a delay. Golden-copper and slightly cloudy with beige head. The hops are muted and a little earthy dirt throughout.

On tap at Whip In, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, toasted biscuity malt and light resinous oils. Flavour is very bitter, with piney hops, resinous oils, dank notes and dry toasted malt. Bitter and piney, with a bone dry finish. Nice stuff.

Looks great... Pours a rich amber-copper color....foreshadows some deep malts. Nice contrast with the sticky white head, webs of lace. Aroma is heavy resin, citrus. A tad thinner than I expected, good flavor though, pine, toasted malt, caramel, earthy edges and a nice bitter bite going down.... Traces of woodiness.

On tap at Bangers, Austin. Slightly more malt forward than a lot of IPA’s out there which isn’t a bad thing, still enough of the hop good stuff to be interesting.

On tap at Craft Pride, Austin, TX, 27.4.16. Clear dark amber-brown. A little bready, warm cake aroma, bitter and a little skunky-old taste. Light-to-medium body, mildly bitter finish.

Poured from a tap on south congress in Austin. Long drive and a beautiful day. Easily tides me over while waiting on my food.

Nice in-your-face beer. Leaves a great bitterness. If you are worried about bitterness beer face, don’t drink it.

3.3
theisti (4247) - Kansas, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Full pint draft at Craft Pride in Austin, Texas. The pour is a clear copper golden with a smaller white head. The aroma is faint, some sweet floral and general bitterness. The taste picks up some with resin floral hop along with noticeable alcohol. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and a floral sweet finish. Decent, but a bit flabby as it warms.
